Everything is on sale, only you need is the money. If you have extra $10 million (precisely $9,500,000) and you like the water, you can buy your own island – the Kings Island in Denmark. Commissioned by Danish King Christian IX in 1890, this 180,000 square feet island is the the world’s largest artificial island not connected to the mainland. Located between Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö, the island can be reached in under 15 minutes from Copenhagen by water and it also features a fully functioning helipad.
Known to the Danes as Middelgrundsfortet, Kings Island consists of 200 rooms, contains over two and a half miles of hallways and required more than two and a half million tons of solid Bornholm granite to complete. It is perfect in size, structure, and location to be utilized for conferences, seminars or team-building exercises. It could be a jewel in the crown of a large corporation, or several smaller companies could unite to own it jointly.
For nearly a decade, Kings Island was owned privately and has been given a hotel as well as a conference facility. The hotel itself features 24 rooms and 88 beds, along with an elegant captain’s quarters dome that sports impeccable maritime styling. The original oak doors and windows are intact and even the original mine station, crew lounges and still-functioning period generators exist today. The property also has a restaurant, a nightclub, and a bar and billiard lounge.
The private island purchase process for non-Danes is straightforward: The foreign buyer simply establishes a Danish company, which can in turn buy the island without any complications. [Private Island]
